    Less fartsy, more artsy

    New Haven is finally getting a decent arthouse theater. Up until now, they've had a nice 4-screen theater in York Square. But it's very slow with changing its titles, and it could use a little sprucing up.

    But now, the renovated Temple Square area is getting a Criterion Cinema in November. First-run independent films shown on 5 screens in modern comfort. It pairs an old-school sidewalk box office with the amenities of what you'd expect in the new megaplexes. Ooh la la. Let's hope the ticket prices won't be outrageous -- although I'm sure they will be.

    Now all this city needs is a decent music store. Cutler's over-priced, underwhelming selection doesn't cut it.
